  1. How to make Broccoli Cauliflower Salad:
  2. Cut broccoli into small florets. I peel the stems then dice them and add them to the salad also (no waste!). Cut the cauliflower into small pieces also. Transfer to a large mixing bowl along with cranberries and toasted pine nuts.
  3. Stir together 2 Tbsp honey, 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 cup mayo until smooth.
  4. Add dressing to the salad to taste (I put all of it in) and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
